This year the Conference will focus on ways in which we can strengthen the collaboration and cooperation that has been building amongst booksellers, publishers, authors and other industry partners. We’ll also be looking at ways to ensure our sustainability through engaging our communities.
The 2017 keynote speakers are James Daunt and John Mutter.
Other conference highlights include sessions on:
- strategies for sustainability in a time of change
- establishing points of difference in working with independent and small publishers
- engaging with local communities
- the impact of potential changes in the Award/Penalty rates
There will also be updates from the Indigenous Literacy Foundation and Nielsen BookData, the launch of 2017 National Bookshop Day and the Gala Dinner on Sunday night
We look forward to welcoming you to what will be a very stimulating education program.
